Much has been written about the label of "Super Lawyer," including Kevin O’Keefe’s post about the organization playing to egos to sell advertising and the possible ban on advertising one’s inclusion in the list.

No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
